A Little Masterpiece
17 February 2019 | by emcebeSee all my reviews

What a beautiful surprise this film was. We had never heard of it which truly puzzles us. A truly lovely, and quirky , story with fine performances from all the cast and amazing cinematography showcasing our NSW outback in some very unique settings. And the music was absolutely wonderful. Just loved this film so much and cannot believe we only just discovered it when we streamed it this evening to great delight , ten years after it was made. Just cannot believe it was not better promoted at the time..
